STATEWIDE -- CNN reported Monday morning that federal officials may be investigating whether Gov. Chris Christie improperly used Hurricane Sandy money for ads to market the Garden State that promoted his family.

The website reports: "In the new probe, federal auditors will examine New Jersey's use of $25 million in Sandy relief funds for a marketing campaign to promote tourism at the Jersey Shore after Sandy decimated the state's coastline in late 2012, New Jersey Democratic Rep. Frank Pallone told CNN. In an August letter, Pallone asked the Department of Housing and Urban Development inspector general to look into how Christie chose to spend the marketing money approved by the department."
